Let’s face it – visiting our loved ones for the holidays should be a highlight of the year. We should be overjoyed with homecoming cheer, embraces with loved ones we don’t get to see as often as we would like, and of course gather for dinner and other celebrations. Unfortunately, before you get there you have to go through the arduous task known as “holiday travel”. The roads and highways are jammed making it feel like you are in an endless parking lot. Don’t even want to think about the lines at the airport! The frustrating part of the holidays should be who got the last of the cranberry sauce, not the effort it takes to get to where you’re going! So, we can probably all agree that holidays are awesome, but holiday travel stinks.

Let Allegro Medical help take some of the challenge out of holiday travel. We can’t help you bake a 20 pound turkey or even take a stab at trying to replicate Aunt Edna’s secrete sweet potato pie recipe, but we can offer you some product ideas to make the travel part just a little less stressful.

Allegro Medical has an exclusive Bed Rail Advantage Traveler & Car Caddy Bundle which includes a convenient Car Caddie hand strap to use getting in and out of the car, plus a bonus portable bed rail to make it easy to get in and out of bed. Both products are available in a single package for only $49.99 - way cheaper than throwing out your back or falling.

Having trouble getting Great-Grandma in and out of that low to the ground sports car or gigantic SUV? Help her out - it’s your great grandma for crying out loud. Check out the Handybar 3-in1 Car Aid to help get in and out of the car safely. This little handle hooks to the door jam of the car to safely create a handle to help steady the user while climbing in or out of a car. Once safely in the vehicle you simply lift the handle off in seconds. Simply reattach when you need to use it again. It is also a safely tool that can be used in case a fast exit from the vehicle is needed. These make great gifts and should be in every car.

Believe it or not some people still don’t wear seatbelts, even when most states have “Click it ort Ticket Laws”. Come on folks; don’t make me nag you. Let’s buckle up for safety so we all have a great holiday travel season to remember for years. If you or somebody you know is in this group because they are uncomfortable you need the Car Seat Belt Cushion from Allegro Medical. This cover will go over the lap or shoulder portion of the belt to create a comfy cushion for an offending area. For seat belts to work properly and provide the correct protection they should be adjusted correctly and snug. This little cover could really help you protect yourself and avoid a potential ticket.
This is also a great gift for anybody that needs to travel that might find a seat belt uncomfortable including pregnant women and anybody recovering from injury or surgery.

Does anybody need a little help around the house, airport, or shopping mall? Allegro Medical also has many wheelchair options available for those that need a little extra help. The Fold ‘N Away Transport Chair has a funny sounding name, but this chair is easy to fold, store, and carry and will come in handy whether used in the home or while traveling by car or airplane.

All of these products help make it a little easier to get from point A to Point B, but don’t forget the little things around the house that will make a visit much more convenient and safe. Allegro has many daily living aids available to make your life and travel easier. Here are a few of the more popular items we see a need for during the busier travel times of the year.

  • Toilet Safety Frame -$31.00
  • Bath Tub Clamp on Grab Bar -$29.88
  • Suction Cup Grab Bars – starting at $44.95
  • Bath + Safe Shower Chair starting at $37.95
  • Last but not least is this handy little item. It’s kind of a delicate subject, but I know that it used to drive my Father nuts when we did a road trip because somebody always needed to stop for a “rest area break”. Help reduce Dad’s stress level by throwing a box of the Travel John Disposable Urinals in the car. Make the rest area come to you in with these clean and sanitary urinals which actually use a biodegradable polymer substance to absorb liquid waste.

    Here’s one more product to consider in order to keep from losing your sanity on a long trip. Ever get tired of those noises from the backseat like “are we there yet” or “Mom, Jimmy’s touching me”. After about a thousand times of hearing this even the most rock steady parent will resort to the proverbial “if I hear one more peep out of the backseat we’re turning around and going home!”. Don’t let that happen. Hook the young ones up with a 7” Widescreen Portable DVD Player for just $99. It even has a headphone jack to allow them to watch their favorite DVD movie cartoons for the millionth time without driving you nuts. It’s a win-win in the car!

    As you click around the website you may want to pay close attention to a couple of special categories that we have this holiday season. Find great gift ideas and special sale priced items on Allegro Medical.

    We sincerely hope that your holiday season and travels are safe, happy, and full of joy. Have a great time on your trip!
